OK! Maybe it's more like one giant system with a lot of moving parts that all work perfectly together.
You know, except when they don't.
I love to read - reading has never been a chore or even a hobby. For me, it's a way of life and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
Writing on the other hand was never something I excelled in. So when it comes time to get all those lovely little thoughts I have on a book out of my head, sometimes it's a challenge.
I TRY to write a review the second I finish a book. I close the book, get up, find my computer and write. I think this works for me because my reviews tend to be more about my emotional reaction to a book rather then it's form and function. I don't analyse style and literary markers - I like talking about how a book makes me feel. My reviews aren't technical and I don't think they ever will be.
So, what happens when I don't write up that review right away?
...bad things...very very bad things....
Ok, not really but it can be a challenge at times.
Today I'm asking you, as a blogger, as a reader -
how do you handle your reviews?
Do you take notes while you read?
Are you always on the look out for nuggets of content from a book to add to your review?
Are you not even thinking of your review while reading?
As someone who really only writes when I'm blogging, I find other people's writing styles fascinating.
If you have a minute - drop a comment :)

Seriously, I would LOVE to talk to you guys about this!
